The subject is focused on technologies of drug formulation. Particular drug forms are shown from two different points of views: the physical-chemical on one hand and the organism - drug form interaction on the other hand. Among others the issues concerning selection of appropriate excipients, drug formulation, quality and stability of dosage forms are discussed. Biopharmaceutical and pharmacokinetic aspects are presented as well.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Zbytovská Jarmila doc. Mgr. Dr. rer. nat. (10.04.2014)

Students will be able to:

  • apply physical-chemical backgrounds in drug formulation
  • evaluate the pros and cons of the particular dosage forms in concrete cases, including manufacturing
  • understand issues of selection of appropriate excipients; know their classification and utilization
  • independently solve model case studies on drug formulation and stability
